Walking dress, Winter 1829

Item Title: Walking dress, Winter 1829


Description/Notes: A woman wears a brown walking dress with full skirts and sleeves and a cinched waist. The collar is high and composed of two, white lace ruffs. The woman wears a gray fur stole lined with pink and pulls on a pair of short, yellow gloves. Her black shoes are flat and lace up like ballet slippers over her beige stockings. The woman's hat is large and black. Its wide, dome-like brim is lined with pink and has a short, black lace veil. The crown of the hat is decorated with an enormous pink and black bow, and wide, pink ribbons hang down from the hat. A gray fur muff which matches the stole lies on the ground. Written in pencil in the upper right is "'29".
